Welcome to my world: where everything is made of threads. Where closing crosses gives me pleasure.  Where the obsession for finishing a piece is constant and then I regret it ended. Where there's nothing more exciting than starting embroidering a pattern designed by myself, for the first time. Where white Aida cloth is porn. Where I am pretty sure I'll spend the rest of my life. All pieces below were designed and embroidered by myself.
